The excitement around chatbots illustrates how Siri, Alexa and other voice assistants — which once elicited similar enthusiasm — have squandered their lead in the A.I. race.
This is a very odd article, and this specific paragraph is a hilarious assertion. Ah yes, those voice assistants spurred our enthusiasm for several years and then fell off a bit, just like ChatGPT has for the past 4 months, but this one certainly won’t fall from these highs!
Also for the love of god, Siri, Alexa, and Google Assistant are interfaces for features, and it seems very clear that Apple and Google at least will bring this new tech to their assistant interfaces.
Just an odd take, that’s all.
